“This fantasy that it is possible to fish sustainably, legally, and using workers with contracts, making a living wage, and still deliver a five-ounce can of skipjack tuna for $2.50 that ends up on the grocery shelf only days after the fish was pulled from the water thousands of mi,es away. Prices that low and efficiencies that tight come with hidden costs, and it is the manning agencies that help in the hiding.”
Ian Urbina, The Outlaw Ocean: Journeys Across the Last Untamed Frontier

“Slavery is a harsh reality thatmour better angels would like to think ended two centuries ago, when many countries passed laws against such bondage withing their borders. But this sort of bondage is a global blind spot, because governments, companies, and consumers either don't know it occurs or, when they do, prefer to look the other way”
Ian Urbina, The Outlaw Ocean: Journeys Across the Last Untamed Frontier
